Divorce lawyers can assist you in preparing for a domestic partner split as in any divorce proceeding. Registered domestic partners have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and are subject to the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under family law statutes as are granted to and imposed upon spouses going through a divorce.

A Divorce attorney will also assist partners who were together prior to the current laws regarding domestic partners. Former registered domestic partners have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and shall be subject to the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under law under family law statutes as are granted to and imposed upon former spouses.

Regarding probate cases a surviving ex domestic partner will also be able to succeed in receiving the same death benefits that a divorcing spouse would receive under the same or similar situation. Therefore a widower domestic partners shall receive the same rights as a surviving divorcing spouse under the law.

A Divorce lawyer will assist you with any child custody disputes that arise with the split of a domestic partnership. Any child custody dispute will be treated under the same child custody laws as a divorcing couple might have. The family code will protect all domestic partners from any challenge the domestic partners might have when going to family law court and seeking visitation or custody rights.

At the Law office of David P Schwarz we will protect any difference that might exist in federal law as compared to California law. We will argue to the Court that California law will prevail even if federal law differs to that of the state family code regulations. Presently as in the past the state laws were different from the federal laws. However, presently the conflict is not as distinct.

An Orange County lawyer will vigorously defend a domestic partnership against any discrimination that might be fond during the proceedings in the superior Court. Registered domestic partners shall have the same rights regarding nondiscrimination as those provided to spouses. A California public agency cannot and will not discriminate against any person or couple on the ground that the person is a registered domestic partner. The Public agency cannot differentiate against a spouse from that of a registered domestic partner.

The date of marriage of a marriage as it relates to a domestic partnership shall be the date the couple registered as domestic partners.

At the Law Office of David P Schwarz we will handle all domestic partnership issues and make sure that the Orange County superior Court follows all the domestic partnership laws under the State of California.
